When you visit the Bara Imambara, you can buy a triple-ticket for the smaller "Chota Imambara" and a small art gallery. Spend most of your time in the Bara Imambara. It is much larger and grander. The main building is a huge hall. To tour the main building they'll make you take your shoes off, as it is sacred to the Shias ... suggest you wear thick socks and not get squeamish about the cleanliness. Steep stairs lead up to the roof and the famous "Bhool Bhulaiya" corridors that provide the structure to support the roof of the large hall. The pictures towards the river look pretty, as there is no new buildings to mar the view. The building dates from 1783, the time when Nawabs ruled the province of Awadh from their capital in Lucknow.
